huffington post." thanks for being here. >> great to be here, rev. >> nia, i've been around politics since i was a teenager, i've never seen anything that bad where the nominee had to stop the crowd and put his name out front. i mean, this is a little crazy, don't you think? >> and you've seen this before. you've seen people, you know, sort of tripping up on romney's name, calling him mitt romney. you've seen him on "60 minutes" rep minding that he's the one on the ticket running for president. ryan has energized this ticket. barack conservatives on board. now you have conservatives saying, unleash ryan and have him talk more about policy and his plans for the future of the country. but it has been a bit of a sticky situation. the aides i've talked to around romney say they have a great relationship, they talk several times a day. but in reality ryan does have a different set of advisers around him, a different set of speechwriters. i think everyone at this point is waiting to see if ryan, in fablt, goes rogue at some point. does he move to save his brand, which, of course, was this young gu
